  1. i agree we all make mistakes and gibson is no exception, the only mistake are the high prices which prevent me from having more of them, hahahahah
  2. I think the caps on the pick ups look better tan uncapped ones.... but i hope it all works out, good luck, eric
  3. does anyone think the zebra 57 and 57 plus are much lesser hot than burstbucker pro's ?
  4. i heared once tha queens , brian may used 0.08 gauge !!! I tried them once but they where flappy and unstable. On my fenders and gibsons i always use 046-009 , but i bought recently a used 2005 standard les paul and it had 0.10 which i changed for a set of 0.09 but it sounded warmer but perhaps i imagined it..... Could be that new strings sound more bright and less warm and the "warm "come with a couple of hours play , now its seems better....
  5. Hallo everybody , i always replace the strings on a les paul for a set of 046-009 and i find this to work best for my fingers tension-wise. what do you guys and girls think that are probably playing 046 - 010's am i loosing out on sound or is the difference not at all audible?
  6. thank god , theres no coil tapping on my special run!!!!
  7. hearing sometimes about the not so good les pauls with loads of issues and faults i wonder if in these limmited runs the quality department tries even harder or cant be bothered?
  8. i am gonne put a set of 46-09 on it so itt'l play less tough on the thin strings, but as is , i am absolutely falling inlove with it!!!!!
  9. very different indeed!!! thats a tribute with no binding different knobs etc so no limited run
  10. very different indeed!!! thats a tribute with no binding different knobs etc so no limited run
  11. thanx Farns, it is a good guitar and indeed a little rounded neck style like 50's les pauls. i do think the frets are a bit high and the edges would have been nice rolled but now theyre coved by the binding but there a bit edgy but not sharp so i geuss i will get used to it. the zebra 57 pick ups are nice but not super hot.
  12. Hi all , i recentely purchased this; Gibson USA 2016 Limited '50s Les Paul Standard (Faded Honeyburst) and it seems to be a limited release and sold in a few shops. Stil i cant seem to find much info on this one and its a so called proprierty guitar and nothing about it on the gibson site . why could it be that its not listed there? Its is a gibson not a fake!!!https://www.gak.co.uk/en/gibson-usa-2016-50s-les-paul-standard-ltd-faded-honeyburst-nickel who knows anything about this nice guitar? thanx all , greetz eric ekkerman
